The aerospace giant picked Spirit Aerosystems for the job of manufacturing the wing of the eVTOL aircraft. Some quick information on the CityAirbus NextGen. CityAirbus NextGen is an all-electric, four-seat vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) multicopter concept featuring a wing. It boasts an 80-km range and a cruise speed of 120 km/h – making it perfectly suited to zero-emission flight operations for a variety of applications in major cities.
  2. The aircraft will be utilized in the UAM (Urban Air Mobility) market. The CityAirbus NextGen is really a fusion between two fielded eVTOL projects - the Vahana and the CityAirbus-. The lessons learned from this double-demonstrator approach have been essential to the creation of this new generation of eVTOL. The key features of this aircraft include A fixed wing, a V-shaped tail, eight electric-powered propellers as part of its uniquely designed distributed propulsion system, No moving surfaces or tilting elements and a spacious cabin with four seats and easy boarding. CityAirbus NextGen entered its detailed design phase in 2021, with the prototype’s first flight planned for 2023.
